Royal Route Opened To Support Safer Riding

A picturesque route across the Derbyshire countryside designed for and ridden by the Queen 16 years ago will be opened for the first time to the public next month for a sponsored ride supported by leading national equine insurer, South Essex Insurance Brokers.

The BHS Jubilee Sponsored Ride on May 18 and 19 is organised by the British Horse Society with the help of South Essex and Stable Express, and is designed to raise funds for the Society's work on making the roads safer for horse riders and carriage drivers.

Riders will need a minimum of £15 in sponsorship (£10 for under 16s) to start the ride, which is expected to take between two and a half and three hours and includes the lanes and forests of the Duchy of Lancaster Estate. It will start from Eland Lodge Farm, near Ashbourne and will be started by international event rider Ian Stark at 10am.

Each rider will receive a commemorative mug and rosette. Stabling and overnight accommodation will be available and there will be a barn dance on
the Saturday night.

Entry forms can be downloaded from the BHS website, or by sending a self addressed and stamped envelope to the Safety Department,
British Horse Society, Stoneleigh Deer Park, Kenilworth, Warwickshire, CV8 2XZ.
